EPIC 2013 features nine handpicked workshops that were designed to provide attendees with fresh skills and perspectives on the art and science of ethnographically informed work. A clutch of workshops will discuss how we train and mobilise as a professional community in- and outside of academia. An- other will discuss how we sell our work (and how it is bought). Other sessions were designed to introduce attendees to new tools that can be used to conduct fieldwork or how to create a digital ecosystem of ideas, information and conversations. Simple, human-scale technologies and cognition came to the fore in workshops designed to teach people how to think with their hands, to command a room with a whiteboard and marker pen or unfold creative thinking processes.
